Location? In our own Cascades: in a location that we have never been to before. And rated tops by those that have been. Just about on the divide and just south of Mt Jefferson. Will camp by a clear and cold spring-fed lake called Table Lake. This will be a hike-in pack-in camp, the first we have had in several years. The Camp Committee realizes that some members will not be pleased, while others will be more than pleased. However it was thought a number of years ago that summer camps should be staggered with a drive in one year and a pack in the next. This takes into consideration both kinds of campers. Some of the committee members have been in this area and became quite enthusiastic about its possibilities as a Summer Camp site. This will be from August 2 to August 15th inclusive.
